Dillian Whyte is coming off a big win over former champion Joseph Parker but by all accounts, he still doesn’t appear to be mandatory contender for the WBC title (held by Deontay Wilder) just yet. With Wilder linked with Tyson Fury this year and possibly Anthony Joshua next April, what next for Whyte?
Whyte was rewarded financially for his recent win over Joseph Parker with an estimated 350,000 pay per view buys in the UK at a price point of around 22 dollars per buy (sterling to dollar conversion) so should have easily pocketed a career high pay-day of over a million dollars for his last bout, at least.
But it’s a shot at the title and the mega pay days that Whyte wants and a shot at Deontay Wilder is a fight he’s been pursuing all year now.
It doesn’t look like it will happen straight away but the question was asked on social media, who do fans want to see him in with next?
It is likely he’ll be boxing in the US next up, but here’s what some of the responses have been so far with Miller, Ortiz, Char and Chisora the four main names mentioned:
Chisora if it’s in U.K. Otherwise Big baby in US will be good scrap ??
